A massive alligator was spotted on a golf course in Florida.



The giant reptile was caught on camera stopping down the fairway toward the lake at Valencia golf course.

Social media was left stunned by the footage, with several users suggesting that the alligator had been photoshopped onto the fairway.

One news reporter tweeted: "Take a look at this massive gator walking through Valencia Golf Course in Naples. He looks like he belongs in Jurassic Park!"

Another added: "I thought it was a joke of some sort. I've not only never seen one that large but also with such long legs?? Yikes!!"

Alligators are not uncommon on golf courses as they are built on wildlife preserves on the east coast of the US as the animals return to the lakes after being pushed out of their natural habitat.
